- "Can't believe this… standards at the Republic Health Administration must be nonexistent! I went to medical school with the new acting head."
- ―Archiban Kimble
The Republic Health Administration was the government organization responsible for overseeing the Galactic Republic's medical facilities, studies, and resources. Based on the Republic's capital world of Coruscant, the Administration appointed a new acting head in 3642 BBY—a doctor who had developed a cure for the low-grade flesh-eating virus known as Zabrak Scalp Necrosis. His appointment prompted scorn from one of the doctor's former classmates, Archiban Kimble, as the man's poor medical skills and low intelligence had been notorious during their time at the First Republic Medical Academy of Coruscant, the University of Coruscant's medical program.
Behind the scenes
The Administration was first mentioned in the BioWare–LucasArts video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, during the conversation "Opportunity Knocks" with the Jedi Knight class' companion character Archiban Kimble, known in-game as "Doc."

- years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and The Old Republic Encyclopedia places the Battle of Ilum at the end of Act III in 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with , the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. places Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve
